And they want a bailout?

Apparently, Greece hasn't learned a thing from it's current financial troubles. And they've just taken a step that should eliminate all possibility of any bail-out.  According to the AP, the Greek government has now extended the category of "disabled" to pedophiles.  Also exhibitionists, kleptomaniacs, pyromaniacs, compulsive gamblers, fetishists and sadomasochists.  According to the Greek Labor Ministry, the categories were included for purposes of medical assessment and "allocating financial assistance."

Get that?  A country already facing financial ruin and and begging for help from other countries has now decided that people who prey on children deserve as much financial assistance as, say, a person born blind.

Time to turn off the money spigot, and to make it clear why.  Let them burn down the whole country.


  1. Greek society started decaying around the time their marble columns started getting knocked down.
    Their actions surprise me not one bit.

  2. @Andy - Just with we weren't developing a culture that looks like them.

    @kx59 - They don't get the Elgin Marbles back, either.
